Introducing the Engage! Cleveland Leadership Council

We are excited to announce and introduce the first-ever Engage! Cleveland Leadership Council. The council is made up of 38 talented and passionate Cleveland young professionals who come from a wide array of careers and backgrounds. The council will serve as advocates for the YP community by assisting in the planning and execution of EC programs and events and by promoting a positive YP experience in Cleveland. Though the Leadership Council is full of unique individuals they all have one thing in common, they are passionate about Cleveland. 20160623_183437

The Co-Chairs will oversee the Leadership Council, guide the meetings, and communicate with the EC Board of Directors on behalf of the council. The Leadership Council will meet once every other month, and the individual committees will connect on the off months. Individual committees on the council will include social media, graphic design, community relations, programs and events. Each member of the Council will have a two-year term, and can renew their membership for up to three terms.


The EC Leadership Council allows for Cleveland's young professionals to have a direct impact and influence on what EC offers to the YP community. With the council's input of new ideas, there is no doubt that EC can continue to serve Cleveland's young professional community to the best of our ability. We look forward to engaging with these talented young professionals and we cannot wait to see what they accomplish.
